Sweat/Garlic Pills
Jan 13, 2005

I stopped PEP - Epivir,Sustiva/Zerit on 12/27/04 but I now sweat in my armpits particularly my left armpit. This condition started when I was on PEP and it still persists. Should I be concerned?

Also, I would like to start taking garlic pills. Is this safe?

Response from Dr. Henry

I haven't heard of localized persistent sweating abnormalities being due to those HIV Meds after short-term use. If you need garlic for other reasons it should be OK to take though would discuss with your primary care doctor. KH
